CLAY Burgers-POP ART!
I started a pop art unit with 4th grade students this week. I have seen clay cupcakes floating around the Internet but I decided to go with clay burgers. I love Claes Oldenburg's food sculptures so I decided to base the project around him and pop art. The students had a BLAST on this project, lots of creative ideas. I held them all together with a toothpick. My plans are to pull the toothpick out before firing and return once the clay is cooled. I will have the students paint their burger and seal it with mod podge. I thought about glazing but decided tempera paints will look bright and 'pop artish'..so stay tuned for the end results! Glad to be back in the blog world! I hadn't had much to share because my classes were all working on the 'Square 1 Art' fundraiser...more on that later! Happy Wednesday Y'aLL!
